A lot of the patterns were done on CinDwood Looms which are great because they come in the 1/2" gauge great for making a nice tight knit.
This stitch adds wonderful texture and life to a pattern. Yes it is time consuming, and yes it does take a lot of yarn, but man is it worth the look and feel of the finished product!!!
The owl gloves pattern below is soon to come out, but check out the owl booties while you wait!!!
